Singleton Legacy Group chairman Warren Barnes OAM would like to thank local residents and businesses for their continued support. Once again they conducted their annual fundraising in the first week of September. During the week and, on Badge Day, they were assisted by the students from Singleton High School, St Catherine’s College and soldiers from the School of Infantry.
He says we always set a target for our fundraising and similar to previous years, we were pleased with the results.
“We would like to acknowledge the generosity of the residents of Singleton particularly on Friday, September 1,” Mr Barnes says.
“Businesses of Singleton were most generous with their financial support to Legacy in the lead up to and during badge week.”
Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering after the injury or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service.
They currently care for around 65,000 widow(er)s and 1,800 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.
And, although “Legacy Week has come and gone for another year, what remains is Legacy’s promise to come for the families of those who served,” says Australian Chairman, Tony Ralph.
